UW-Madison's Jacqueline Forbes was recently selected for the American Evaluation Association's (AEA) Graduate Education Diversity Internship (GEDI). 

Forbes is a third year Ph.D. student with the School of Education's Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis. Her research explores structural barriers to college admission for low-income students and students of color. Forbes has also worked as a high school history teacher in Brooklyn, N.Y., and as a college access program administrator in Atlanta, Ga. 

As a GEDI intern, Forbes will be working with The LEAD Center, housed within the Wisconsin Center for Education Research at the UW-Madison School of Education. The LEAD Center's mission is "to advance the quality of teaching and learning by evaluating the effectiveness and impact of educational innovations, policies, and practices within higher education."

GEDI interns share a "strong background in research skills, an interest in extending their capacities to the field of evaluation, and a commitment to thinking deeply about culturally responsive evaluation practice."
